Astoria's Finest Bagels Are Here. Or Are They?

Back in the summertime, I impatiently waited for Astoria's Finest Bagels, a new bagel shop on Ditmars Blvd to open.  Well it sure took them a while but they're finally up and running.  I walked by the other day, went in, grabbed a menu and called it a day.  Not to say that I won't go back and try something, I just wasn't in the mood for a bagel right then and there.  Although the reviews have been a bit off-putting, I'm willing to set 'em aside and experience it for myself.  I suggest you do the same.

Here's a brief sampling of their menu to give you a taste of what you can expect:

Hand-rolled bagels - plain, poppy, cinnamon raisin, sesame, onion, garlic, salt, whole wheat, pumpernickel, pumpernickel-raisin, everything, 9-grain honey, olive, low carb whole wheat oat - $12 for a dozen or $10 for a mini dozen

Cream cheeses - raisin walnut, sun-dried tomato, lox spread, scallion, olive, veggie, low-fat, seasonal fruit, herb...$1.10 - $3.75

Tofu spreads - lox, herb, veggie, olive, walnut raisin, scallion, sun-dried tomato...$2.75 - $3.75

Smoked fish sandwiches - Nova Scotia with cream cheese, baked salmon, white fish, belly lox & cream cheese, smoked tuna, pickled lox...$3.25 - $9.25

Salad sandwiches - white fish, tuna fish, chicken, eggplant, seafood, shrimp, egg, hummus, Mediterranean tuna salad...$2.50 - $6.25

Knishes - mushroom, spinach, potato...$2.75

Astoria's Finest Bagels - 33-06 Ditmars Blvd, Astoria NY 11105

N/W Train to Ditmars Blvd


  1. Yeah I walked by there and still have not had the urge to try the bagels. Im such a big fan of Brooklyn Bagel so I dont want to be disappointed. I think it would do better if it was located around the corner on 31st st close to the train.

  2. Might be good. I'll let you know. Maybe we'll be pleasantly surprised.

  3. it's not fancy, nor does it have an eye popping selection of pastries (i'll go to martha's for that anyway), but delivery is fast and it's not expensive. the service is pretty good also

    i like brooklyn bagel also, but their delivery is slow and expensive. also the lines there look like something out of six flags, and i'm not necessarily sure that's from popularity but maybe slow order processing
